Jack Hertz- Complex Silence 34 [treetrunk 264]
Jack Hertz returns to the Complex Silence Series with a deeply meditative and spacious soundscape.
Run time 51:48
Complex Silence 34 is a study of a slow-moving life form that could be the mascot for everything that exemplifies ambient music. It occupies a patient space all its own in a deep universe without any consideration of time and Hertz captures this essence perfectly.
Jack writes: "...this album was inspired by the starfish that populate the Pacific coast where I live. The beautiful creatures move in a nearly imperceptible way along the ocean floor. Are such peaceful and elegant beings that I wanted to create some music that reflected their solemn place in nature."
Get comfortable and prepare for a long musical trek through an open expanse you can visit whenever you need to stop, take a deep breath, and focus on the mysteries and gifts of life and being.
Thank you Jack, for these beautiful reminders from the silent, yet richly complex world of the starfish.
The Complex Silence Series welcomes collaboration and contributions from fellow ambient artists who wish to contribute their interpretation of similar musical themes and ideas.

Thank you for posting this very lovely audio....
I have been listening to this track for a year now...and appreciate it more and more...I play it constantly at home and at work. At home I have three systems all playing the same track independently, and as I move from room to room the audio and the ambience is seamless...I can think of no better word to describe this track : lovely.
